Hi Folks,

We looking to purchase a house in the Brossard area. What are some of the better sectors in Brossard? So far, from what I have seen personally, 'L', 'O', 'R' and 'S' seem to be some of the newer and better looking neighborhoods.

Is my observation accurate? I am mostly speaking from a young family's (we have a six year old son) point of view

Appreciate any information provided.

Thanks,
RN

I used to live in S, on Schubert to be exact.
Relatively all of Brossard is pretty nice, but I would suggest anywhere South of Rome, especially the areas along the bike trail.
West S was a little bit too close to the freeway for my liking, and despite the massive noise-block wall there, traffic was still very audible.
West S was also more of a mix of rowhouses, condos and duplexes.
I would say East S is ideal. The area east of the trail, just before you hit Pelletier.

Are you sending your child to French or English school? The B neighborhood is older but lots of anglophones, kids activities, and a great English school (Harold knapper).

Overall I think Brossard is a very Anglo-friendly town.
The part where I lived (S) was mixed with all types of cultures, with heavy Asian and middle-eastern populations, all of which spoke English.
Also, while there, take advantage of places like the Champlain Mall (not HUGE, but VERY nice) and Quartier Dix30. Good choice on looking at Brossard. Definitely one of the best areas in Montreal.

Thank You for the response Arcenal. We will be visiting on Sydney this week and will keep an eye out for the noise you mentioned.

Thanks aliss2 for the reply. My son goes to a private school, in sector S. That is one of the main reasons we are looking to move to Brossard.

I checked out Sector B but the buildings are older as you mentioned.

Personally not big on shopping but my wife is excited about the two malls.
